Ethiopia Integrating Off-grid Technologies into Electrification Planning (Case Study)
For this Case Study Series, GET.transform has worked with governments, companies and industry experts to find realworld examples of where renewable energy solutions are truly working viably, to create value for
communities, boost employment, and achieve national objectives.
his case study features Ethiopia and draws on the experience of the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and
Energy, its Directorate of Electrification, Regional Energy Bureaus and the Ethiopian Electric Utility, who
have cooperated with development partners such as the World Bank’s ESMAP, the AfDB and GIZ, with
their support on the planning dimension and Ethiopia’s off-grid electrification agenda.
The identified case studies focus on the one hand on renewable energy industry solutions built on
revenue-driven business models, as well as on best practice regulatory frameworks that have solved
common challenges in the development of the rural electrification and off-grid market. With a focus on
Africa, the case studies aim to present policymakers and stakeholders with encouraging evidence from
the renewable energy world.
